really cool game! a few of the puzzles took some serious brain power but i got through eventually lol. The controls were nice, the visuals were nice, the puzzles were challenging but not impossible

thank you!


Love this game, but I'm stuck at the puzzle under the bridge and can't tell what you have to do


Hey Jared, thanks glad you like it! For that particular puzzle my hint would be.. count the flashes.

Thank you for the hint, but I'm ashamed to say that I still don't understand how to solve the puzzle. 

Might be a stretch to spoiler something, but maybe if you could send a fractured link to an image, that could work to show off the solution. I apologise for being unable to think of a solution for this by myself.


Don't be ashamed! It's my first game and some of the puzzles are a bit obscure -- plus given the short length of the game there's not enough time to introduce puzzle mechanics slowly. I'm just happy people are playing the game :)

When you click a square, the blinking lights indicate how many squares (NSEW) until the next correct square. Here's the solution:

is there any way to get hints without the puzzle being spoiled? For example, one of the rooms I'm stuck on is the one with blue screens. I don't understand how they work or what their purpose is and I've been trying for quite some time.

Hi @ClaireIsBored! Yes, in hindsight that puzzle is a little obscure (my first game -- forgive!). As a hint I would say: examine the behaviour of the cursor on the screens. Thanks for playing :)


Ok. Thanks for the suggestion. Otherwise, I've been loving it so far.


is there any ways to download this game? Its very laggy playing on browser


I like it, but the mouse smoothing gives me so much motion sickness that I can't play for more than a few minutes at a time :(

(Not certain that it's from mouse smoothing alone, could also be fov or bright colors. But it most likely contributes.)

Thanks for the feedback -- I will definitely take note of this and try to add FOV and mouse options in future projects


lovely game.

Thanks! :)


Very fun. I love such an instructionless puzzle game! If you plan more contents I'm looking forward.


I am so stuck and confused on the 5 by 5 gri


really cool, but im completely stuck at the final 2 puzzles at the top haha


Well thought out puzzles and mesmerising aesthetics! This honestly deserves a full release! 

Thank you! I am treating this as a prototype with the idea being to make a full-length (10-15+ hours) game in the future


loved it :


great little escape game. I had fun ! thanks

Glad you enjoyed it!
